Katie & Conor’s Winter Wedding at Union Trust in Philadelphia

Posted on February 20th, 2017 in Weddings by Olivia Marcozzi

We have a confession to make.

Most of the Philip Gabriel Photography team has been crossing its fingers for warmer weather to arrive soon. We’ve had enough of the cold!

However, no matter what the season may be, we can’t help but fall in love again and again with the whimsical Philadelphia winter weddings we’ve had the pleasure of photographing.

Take a look at our most recent winter wedding. Katie and Conor had their wedding ceremony and reception at Union Trust, in the heart of Philadelphia. Finley Catering recently transformed this popular bank-turned-steakhouse into a stunning event venue, and they’ve never ceased to amaze with their incredible décor, mouthwatering menus, and ability to throw an unforgettable party. Union Trust’s sky-high ceilings, romantic lighting, and expansive space made it the perfect location for the happy couple to say “I Do.”

We were particularly fortunate to photograph this wedding, since we have had the opportunity to work with Katie as she represents The Four Seasons Hotel! We first met her at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia, before it was transformed into the luxurious Logan Hotel. Now she’s working for The Four Seasons in Baltimore, Maryland, and we were truly honored to be asked to partake in this most important day of her life.

We couldn’t get enough of the beautiful, rich satin dress that Katie wore, topped with a luxurious fur shawl. She needed it, too, with the chilly winter breeze that persisted throughout the evening.

Despite the cold, Katie and Conor barely seemed to notice. They were too happy to care about anything but each other! The entire wedding group was all smiles from the moment the Philip Gabriel Photography team set foot in The Logan to take their getting ready pictures.

Although it may bring chilly weather, this is actually an incredible season for photographs. The winter sun shone beautifully and created a warm glow to all of Katie and Conor’s images.

If you’re concerned about planning a wedding in the winter, don’t be! Take some inspiration from Katie and Conor’s big day. Throw on a cozy fur and get ready for the most incredible day of your life, photographed by our team of experts. Who knows…you might even get a bit of snow on your big day, just like Katie and Conor did as we photographed them on the Art Museum steps!

Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
